Bluetooth connectivity

Hey guys-

I've been trying to pair my Treo 800 with my 06 750i but haven't had any luck. On the iDrive bluetooth screen it just says "pairing" but doesn't find my phone. My phone does find the car when searching but for some reason it doesn't connect.

Has anyone seen this type of issue before.. maybe only certain phones are compatible with the system? I purchased the car last week and deleted the old owners phone from the list, but haven't been able to get it to work on mine.

Any help would be appreciated - thanks!

Update: Saw that its compatible on the BMW website but still can't get it to work, guess I'll have to play with it some more!

have you set your phone in a discoverable mode? most phones turn this feature off automatically for security... when attempting to pair, you must turn discoverability back on in order for any device to see/detect it...

Check your owners manual. There should be a little white card that has your bluetooth passcode on it. If not, then check the link bellow, it w/ help you locate the # in the trunk. Or you may have to make a trip to the dealer to have them pull it up from the car's computer.

Thanks for the replies, I was able to get my phone to discover it and it finally prompted me for the code.. I'm going to check with the dealer I got it from to get me that number

ImolaMMM.. I like your rims - did you get those put on after you purchased your car? I assume you got those from the dealer? Looks good!

those are the bmw 21" style 128 rims... i'm not sure if imola has the oem or aftermarket... both are pretty much the same... Sunny had the same rims on his car, he had the aftermarket wheels and they were pretty solid... probably the most solid thing on the car lol... anyways, here's a link to see more detailed pics of his car lowered with those rims....

Thanks. I added the wheels after I bought the car. They're replicas actually, I guess I need to make that correction in my sig. There are many aftermarket companies that sell them. I forget the name of the company that many on the board use, perhaps one of the vets w/ chime in with the name. If not, run a search-you'll get tire info as well.
*update*
Nuff said! Thanks Harjot!
